New York/Los Angeles
Jason Pomeranc cofounded Thompson Hotels in 2001 with his two brothers and splashed onto the hospitality scene with the boutique hotel 60 Thompson in New York’s SoHo neighborhood. Since then, Pomeranc has put his stylish urban touch on Thompson Hotels from Miami to Los Angeles to London. He served as the co-chairman of Commune, the new hotel brand created when Thompson and Joie de Vivre merged in 2011. Pomeranc was responsible for creating both the brand identity and the physical look of the properties, while adhering to local customs and aesthetics. In 2013, Pomeranc and his partners split from Commune (though still retain several of the flagship Thompson properties) and formed a new brand: Sixty Hotels.
